hi, i'm holly, and i'm a writer.
A "writer" as in, I've known that's what I wanted to be since the first grade, even though my teacher caught me in a lie when I said I wanted to be a marine biologist until she told me she enjoyed my stories and hey did I know what a "writer" did?
A "writer" as in, I spent most of high school running the Massie Quarterly newspaper and fighting the good fight against small-town football favoritism.
A "writer" as in, alumna of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, where I reigned as boss lady/editor-in-chief of Speakeasy magazine and geeked out over pop culture on the reg. I came out of Athens with a bachelors of science in magazine journalism and Jell-O shot crafting.
A "writer" as in, I've written words about everything from advice columns for preteens to a guide of parks in Columbus to (many) kid-friendly captions.
A "writer" as in, a senior copywriter at zulily, where I used words to sell things like SPANX and sports bras and stilettos to "Mom."
A "writer" as in, a word witch for Abercrombie & Fitch and abercrombie kids, where I have made magic with 360-degree marketing (and have had way too much fun doing it) the last 4+ years.
A "writer" as in, I promise I'm still working on that novel during my free time.
A "writer" as in, I literally do not know how to be anything else.
